Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 In 1843 Margaret Fuller, already a well established figure in the Transcendental circle of Emerson and Thoreau, traveled by train, steamboat, carriage, and on foot to make a roughly circular tour of the Great Lakes Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 was Margaret Fuller s first original book length work, the product of her journey through what was then considered the far western frontier in mid nineteenth century America The book is, at least in part, an intensely personal account of Fuller s own inner life during the summer of 1843 She shared with the Transcendentalists the belief that internal travel what Emerson called travel within the mind was the most significant kind of journey Her travel away from New England to visit such places as Niagara Falls, Mackinac Island, and Rock River, Illinois, is symbolic of a larger journey that Fuller was making in her mind her departure from Emersonian idealism and her subsequent revision of Transcendentalism The result is a particularly rich form of autobiography Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 occupies a pivotal position in Margaret Fuller s development as a writer, a Transcendentalist, and a feminist This portfolio of sketches, poems, stories, anecdotes, dialogues, reflections, and accounts of a leisurely journey to the Great Lakes is, at once, an external and an internal travelogue Drawing on historical sources, contemporary travel books, and her own firsthand experience of life in prairie land, Fuller used the opportunity of visiting the frontier to meditate on the state of her own life and of life in America both as they were and as she hoped they might become from the Introduction Fuller gets directly to the essential spirit of the new land Babette Inglehart, Chicago State University Best Read Books Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 author Margaret Fuller – theheartwork.co.uk

    Fuller s insights on her travels are interesting, but she makes many digressions which are sometimes hard to follow.

    An idiosyncratic text that is reallylike a retroactive commonplace book It contains elements of travel writing, feminist critique, a mini play, poetry, translation, Native legends, secondhand stories, and allegorical dialogue My favorite section is the opening reflection on Niagara.

    I ve read parts of this before, but this time I was bothered by her intellectual and class snobbishness How did I not notice it before Her critiques of the white settlers slovenly homes really bugged Still, her descriptions of the scenery are cool.

    This book is boring and dull There is no conceivable plot It isa travel journal than anything else, with a great care paid attention to the details of the prairies and trees and flowers but little to other people or anything of true substance.
